One of my favorite political prognosticators joins Top Story Thursday morning.  Phil Kent is a journalist, former Congressional staffer and one of America’s foremost writers on immigration issues.  You can see his website at this link.  Phil and I grew up in small towns in Central and Western New York.  He shed his Great Lakes accent after settling in Georgia where he befriended former Speaker-of-the-House Newt Gingrich.  With Gingrich on the short list for the Republican Vice Presidential nomination many believe he can restore some intellectual heft to the office now lacking for nearly a decade.  Phil will join us just after 9:00 o’clock news, Mountain Time.
